RE: Want to know what sucks is?
Man can I relate to that. Lived in Southern Ohio in the Ohio river valley for several years. The most humid place I have ever lived and the way our house was situated on the west side of a hill, the house heated up a lot in the afternoon. Our air conditioner went out early in the summer and they did not get the replacement compressor until mid September. The humidity was so bad that our sheets felt damp when we went to bed.

Any way I can relate.

RE: Want to know what sucks is?
See, now I am obviously soft - if it gets to 23C here and 40% humidity I reach for the AC. Mind you, I was at a wedding in Toscana last year, 32C and dry as a bone, I didn't even sweat, and that in a 3 piece suit and tie. So it is the heat/humidity combo I cannot take, even at such mild temperatures. You guys are tough! I bow to you humbly.

I was raised in central/SW/SE Ohio.
Lived on a boat in the Caribbean and ashore on various islands. Lived in SW Florida.
I can say the Great Miami river valley is as stinky hot and often dead calm and humid as it gets outside a swamp.

I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

RE: Want to know what sucks is?
I've narrowed it down to either the run/start capacitor or the fan. The fan seems to ohm out okay. The cap is slightly out of tolerance. More than the 6% they give it. It failed on my blue ESR but I'm not sure I can get an accurate measurement given the voltage rating. Parts are on order and will get here tomorrow. Replacing the contactor also. It seems to work fine but given its age and it is not expensive, might as well. System is about 12 years old and this is the first time I've had issues with it.

I didn't order the fan motor. Will wait and see. That costs $215 and would hate to buy something I don't really need.

Good thing I didn't throw out the little window unit I've been storing for years.

do the measured individual run and start windings equal the measured total of both?
ex 20 ohm + 60 ohm = 80? ie checking for shorts between windings. No grounds?
has it oil ports?
not uncommon to run ok cold and seize hot

Could be worse. You could live in North Philadelphia.

Ya know - I can't remember now but it didn't stand out in my mind as not adding up so it must have? hehe heat has affected the brain.

No oil ports. I didn't check the bearings for play. To late in the day to worry about it.

What really sucks, Alan, is if it happens in July! Not that May is all that much different. I told my brother never to look for a visit from me in the warm months (he lives in Sarasota).

RE: Want to know what sucks is?
Yeah, it's the afternoon rain that makes it worse. We're close enough to the Gulf that we usually stay below 95. When you add all the rain, it doesn't cool it off that's for sure just makes it a sauna. I shut off the solar in the pool hoping it would cool down into the 80's. I think we'll be using it tonight even though it's still 92.
